Adult animation , adult cartoon or mature animation , is any type of animated motion work that is catered specifically to adult interests, and is mainly targeted and marketed towards adults and adolescents, as opposed to children or all-ages audiences. Works in this genre may explore philosophical, political, or social issues. In the United States, before the enforcement of the Hays Code , some cartoon shorts contained humor that was aimed at adult audience members rather than children. Following the introduction of the Motion Picture Association of America film rating system , independent animation producers attempted to establish an alternative to mainstream animation. Initially, few animation studios in the United States attempted to produce animation for adult audiences, but later examples of animation produced for adults would gain mainstream attention and success. The earliest cartoon series were based upon popular comic strips , and were directed at family audiences.

The diversity of graphic approaches was impressive: some of the films made pretensions to high art Belladonna of Sadness while others aspired to match the energy of underground comix Dirty Duck, Shame of the Jungle. By the early-Eighties, the West disavowed their experiments with this type of content and returned its focus to producing safe family-oriented fare.
